My parents never got divorced but they have been split since I was a year old. I have lived with my mother all my life, but I'm just now realizing she's a very very toxic person, so I've decided I want to move in with my father. If I tell her that she'll tell me I can and make up a bunch of stuff about how I'm not able to since I'm a child and she's the mother, she gets to decide. I don't know if this is needed information but I turn 16 in January.
If your father wants to be custodian, then HE needs to take action, not you.
